Elsa Gutierrez M.D., is the president of Derm-Care, a private dermatology practice in West County. She is excited to introduce a new treatment modality beginning March 1st. Dr. Gutierrez is offering Superficial Radiation Therapy for non-melanoma skin cancers (NMSC), keloids and Kaposi sarcomas. The equipment has the capability of treating several sites at once with no limit on lesion size. Treatments are delivered utilizing a board-certified radiation therapist who specializes in the delivery of therapeutic radiotherapy.
Although surgical excision continues to be standard of care for NMSC, it is not appropriate for all individuals due to lesion size, quantity of lesions, location, comorbidities and cosmesis outcome. Superficial radiotherapy provides our patients an additional choice ensuring receipt of an optimal treatment.
